Greece will be the theme country in this year's travel exhibition of the "New York Times", whose inauguration will be carried out on Friday at the Jacob K. Javits convention centre in Manhattan.
The Greek Tourist Organisation (EOT), which is a main sponsor of the exhibition, will be represented at the inauguration ceremony by the director of its offices in the United States and Canada, George Tambakis.
A pavilion of EOT will be found on the premises of the exhibition, as is the case every year, highlighting the image of modern-day Greece, with the main message being "Greece:Explore your senses."
A Greek culinary event will also be held on Saturday, titled "Greece:Authentic cuisine is the soul of a culture", that will be addressed by Rosemary Baron, the author of the known book "Flavours of Greece" and Costas Spiliadis, owner of Greek restaurants. A Greek cultural event by EOT will also be presented on the same day, with the cooperation of the "Hellenic American Ballet Theater." Olympic rhythmic gymnastics athlete Irini Aidinli will be participating in the performance.
Lastly, on Sunday, on the last day of the travel exhibition, traditional Greek songs will be presented by the artist Grigoris Maninakis and the "Mikrokosmos" orchestra.
